Another Call of Duty Warzone Leak Points to Duos Mode Coming Soon

Call of Duty Warzone looks primed to receive one of its most requested features in an upcoming update. Duos mode, the ability to play in teams of two, is on the way according to a recent leak. 

Warzone has had more leaks that we can easily count today in the months leading up to its launch on March 10, but this latest leak comes from Activision itself. The official website for Call of Duty Warzone briefly included an image that showed two new ways to play the free to play battle royale, Quads (teams of four), which is now available in the game alongside the season 3 update, and Duo, which isn't available yet, but all signs point to it coming soon.

The image has since been removed, but not before fans from all over grabbed the screenshot. At launch, Warzone offered only teams of three no matter if players were engaging in battle royale or the game's alternate mode in Plunder. Not long after, Infinity Ward added solo queues to the game, for players who were hoping to play alone. Today it now offers teams of four for the first time ever, but it's still the elusive pair-centric mode that has many players waiting impatiently, but it seems they need not wait much longer. 

Neither Activision nor Infinity Ward has commented on the leak, so it's hard to say exactly when the new team size option will hit the game, but given it placement on the site, it looks like a season 3 feature, which would mean it drops sometime in the next few weeks. 

Call of Duty Warzone recently broke a record held by its genre rival Apex Legends for the most players in its first 24 hours. Apex Legends shocked the world with 2.5 million players in its first day after EA surprise-launched it last year. But Call of Duty Warzone, behind the strength of its IP, surged to six million players on day one.
